i': Catalog Houses Flood The
Country With Catalogs
The mailing of fall catalogs by mail
order houses In Chicago began Aug
st 12. Postmaster Campbell said that
day's Installment was the first of nlue
thousand tons of such mall which will
leave Cbioago before September 1.
The mall order houses have submitted
estimates of the amount of extra mall
ing which they expect to do. "To
gain an idea of how much mail this Is,''
said the postmaster, "forty ilvo trains
of ten cars each will be required to
carry It out of the city, each car can
talning twenty tons. Couuting seven
ty feet to a car, the tralus would cover
a distance of over six miles if placed
end to end."
Under ordinary conditions from
seven hundred to nine hundred tons
of mull is sent out each day from the
Everybody knows that mail of this

the public.

tniiy, as tecently published figures
regarding the o.vnoislilp of mall order
houses showed, most of this money
from the rurul community goes into
the pockets of Wall Street millionaires
and billionaires.
So far as the rural communities are
concerned, the money would better be
burned or hurried. They can't get it
back, they can't borrow it next year
or any other year when they need it
to move their crops or build up their
Money sent to a mail order catalog
house never will build a rural school,
roads or pay the piemiuma for a Farm
ers' Instttute. But if instead it were
paid to local merchants for merchand
ise just as good or better and just as
cheap or cheaper than can be bought
by mail, the local merchant would in
turn deposit his surplus and profits in
the home bank, and next fall when
Mr. Rural Citizen wanted to borrow
money to finance his business he would
not be turned down. Neither would
he be begging for goverumout aid iu
securing credit as nt present.
The laws of finance and trade are
not turned aside at the whim of the
ignoramus who habitually ignores or
defies them. The man who persists in
sending money out of his community
contributes his mite toward depriving
Ids community of just the surplus It
needs In time of stress, at tho same
time that he helps to concentrate in
the large cities the wealth and power
that ultimately will eoaapass his de
struction. American Lumberman.
There were sixteen sacks of these
catalogs received here the last of the
week by Postmaster Hacker aud were
distributed by the rural Jmall carriers
on their routes.
Campaign to Save Corn
Productive of Much Good
The movement corn for fod
der, which has been waged by the
newspapers of the state for the past
two weeks, has been productive of
much good. Reports to the Omaha
liureau of Publicity, from every part
of the btutc, say that farmers are gen
erally storing their corn in silos.
Meetings held In Seward, Central
City and Beatrice were attended by
many farmers, who showed their in
terest iu the methods of saving corn
for feeding purposes.
This campaign demonstrates what
the newspapers and farmers can do by
co-operation. It nieaus a big saving
to the state.

The Sewerage
System Question
The plans and specifications of II. F.
Fuller for a system of sewerage for
this city are in the clerk's oflice. A
very fair presentation of them has al
ready been published in the columns
of the Argus, and the matter Is ready
for public dlBOUsalon. It does not
seem necessary to refer to the parti
culars of the system with more detail
at present
As a whole the measure commends
itself to the Chief. It seems as if the
general features of it must be observed
in any feasible scheme. We are ad
vised that Mr. Puller is a very com
petent gentleman for the work he has
The Chief is strongly in favor of the
adoption of a system of sewerage ut
the ourliest possible date. We should
like to see the Council take up the
matter ut the uext meeting, adopt the
plans of Mr. Fuller and call an election
for tho issuance of bonds.
The need of the city for sewers is
rapidly becoming imperative. Under
the circumstances there is no point in
delay. Rather the conditions favor
the beginning of the work as soon as
may oe. xnero are many or our
people out of work at present, and
more will be. The failure of the crops,
while it stints the farmer in his ex
penditure, should be the occasion for
the expenditure of money by the city,
when that mouey is obtained by the
sale of bonds.
Hard times are the times to vote
and issue the bonds which will be
paid in good times. Meanwhile our
laborers can be put to work.
Again the cess pools In various parts
of the city will soon require to be
cleaned out, while all of them are ap
proaching a more or less dangerous
condition. Opportunity should be
furnished as speedily as possiblo for
the drainage of tho refuse Into later
als connecting with the main system.
Again tho sooner the sewerage Is
provided, the sooner will the private
wells of the city be secured from the
danger of contamination.
The city engineer informs us that
tho water in the private wells of tho
city is on very different levels. Wo
had supposed that the wator level will
practically uniform throughout the
city, Uui this does not seem to lo
the case. Under this mistake, it had
bee; thought that any contamination
of the water would lu time all'oot all
tho wells. This may not bo tho case.
It nny be that with n system of sewer

Irrigation In Humid Sections
The drouth which has prevailed in
many parts of the East this season has
caused a large demand on the Depart
ment for information as to the cost
and possibilities of irrigation. The
Irrigation Investigations of the Office
of Experiment Stations -employs two
men in the East whose time is devoted
to advising farmers and truckmen as
to the kind of equipment needed, the
cost of installation and operation, and
the method of applying water to crops.
Most of the wuter used for irrigation
in the East is pumped from streams or
wells by Individual users, gasoline
engines being used most commonly for
